And You Can Walk It If You Live In Tudor City

Some selections from a spring 1933 ad campaign touting Tudor City's walk-ability to Midtown. While hardly a novel premise, the campaign was not about the usual walking to business, but rather about walking to culture. Not surprisingly, these ads ran in the New Yorker.

First up, the Westminster Dog Show at Madison Square Garden, then located at 49th St. and Eighth Ave., a 30-minute walk from the colony.

Below, details of headlines from other ads in the series.
